Well anytime snow falls in the desert it is monumental! So when we woke up this morning and saw TONS of snow we had to go outside and play! Just yesterday our garden was blooming as normal we've not even had our first frost yet (very odd) so we knew something big would probably happen when it did hit. Still I would never have guessed it would have been this much snow!
We bundled up and went outside to take photos and build a snowman! Then we went for a walk and lucky for us we got to walk in all untrodden snow on our route!
Doesn't he look like the snowman from the movie Rudolph the Red Nosed Reindeer? I love his little chin that just happened to be there.
Then when we got back from our walk in a wonderful winter wonderland we decided to build another snowman for the front yard!
Cute eh? With a pile of snowballs at the ready for him too!

Hummingbird and Passion Flower

Click on the photos to see them closer!
We've had a different hummingbird visiting us I don't know what variety it is but it has forked purple on it's neck! SO beautiful! I just searched it out and I believe it is a Costa's Hummingbird!
ALSO we've been waiting all year for this passion flower "Passiflora Actinia" to boom and it finally has!

Summer Garden and Dragonfly

Lovely rust and clear dragonfly!
Our Guara is doing beautifully, I love how lace-like it is.
View of cannas, a hollyhock stem (main hollyhock trunk is cut down already), some petunias, some bachelor buttons, and zinnias.
View of dwarf lily of the nile, cannas, lavender, fairy rose, and Don Juan climbing rose.

Neat Blue Dragonfly

Isn't this blue and black dragonfly beautiful?
